Home News 3 arrested after damaging car windows, lights
Three men were recently arrested after they allegedly damaged the windows and lights of a car belonging to a man with whom they had a confrontation at a service station.
The incident occurred at about 19:15h at Blankenburg Gas Station, West Coast Demerara (WCD), on Friday.
Reports are Harricharran Alfred, 49, a construction worker of Zeelugt New Housing Scheme, East Bank Essequibo, went into the service station, where he saw three individuals standing in the path leading to the gas pump consuming alcohol.
The man honked his horn on them and one of the suspects became annoyed and threw a glass bottle on the front windscreen of Alfred’s car, causing damages.
Alfred reportedly exited the vehicle along with his two sons and confronted the suspect. An argument ensued which resulted in a scuffle. It was during this time the suspect who threw the bottle armed himself with two knives whilst another armed himself with a cutlass.
The victim told Police that this caused him and his sons to become afraid, and they ran to the Den Amstel Police Station, where they reported the matter.
Police upon arrival at the scene observed the back window, front window, two headlights and four side windows of the said vehicle broken and fragments on the roadway. The men were arrested and are expected in court before the end of the week.
